Whispering of the Autumn Leaves is the upcoming fifth book by C. W. Schultz. It is an epistolary novel told from the perspectives of several different characters, who unwittingly cause or witness events that lead to an impending global war.
Schultz announced a first-person narrative called The Fall of Peacetime in a post on July 8th, 2017, describing it as a medieval fantasy which meshes with the sub-horror genres of his previous books, satisfying longtime readers while also expanding to a new audience. The length of the manuscript had fluctuated between 142,000 and 170,000 words, his longest work yet; with Jill in second, at 105,000 words.
As of April 2018, the novel has been re-titled Whispering of the Autumn Leaves.
